I was doing well all day. Took long walks in the sunshine, in the beautiful parks around me that are bursting with Spring. Then I stopped at the grocery store. When I turned into the aisle with all the Mother's Day cards I was suddenly crying. You see, I lost my Aunt Dotsy less then 2 weeks ago and she was like a mother to me. She raised me when my own mother died at my birth. She was a young newly married woman at that time and I never expressed what a Hero she was to me. She saved me. I don't know how to honor her or spend Mother's Day with her. I am trying to hide my tears- my reaction seems so stupid.
In any case- I was in the grocery store and suddenly became very upset and I purchased junk food! Chips, crackers & cookies. I ate some of it after dinner and DH and DD the elder have no idea why. I felt sick to my stomach. I'm not going to react like this anymore. I even took a nice walk in the park prior to the grocery store. One of those "Random Acts of Fitness" we are suppose to be getting and I was in a very good mood when I started shopping.
I have to anticipate the sudden tears. My aunt was very ill. Her passing is bittersweet.
